1-3.   SAFETY

Unit leaders plan to brief and enforce all safety regulations established by local range control. They coordinate the mode of evacuation of casualties through the appropriate channels. They review all installation safety regulations. Unit leaders must complete a thorough terrain reconnaissance before using an area for land navigation training. They should look for dangerous terrain, heavy trafficked roads, water obstacles, wildlife, and training debris.
